Lot of attention

Installing a sprinkler system in a food processing plant sounds simple, however there are more points to consider than you might think.

Providing adequate sprinkler protection in buildings where food is processed requires a lot of attention; there must be a good understanding of: the use of the building, the room conditions such as temperature and air velocity, the method of cleaning. This requires proper consultation with all the parties involved and choosing the right technical solutions. Sometimes it has to be admitted that not everything can be solved perfectly.
